Juventus Women’s second international signing of the summer has just been confirmed: Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir will, as of 1 July, form part of the Bianconere squad in a two-year deal that will take her to 2024. Welcome, Sara!
The Icelandic star, who is the only player to be named Icelandic Sportsperson of the Year on two occasions, joins the club from UEFA Champions League winning-side Lyon. At the age of 31, Sara arrives in Turin having gained incredible experience with Malmö – now known as Rosengard - (nine titles won), Wolfsburg (eight titles won), and Lyon (four titles, which includes two UWCL trophies).
Her class and incredible work ethic in midfield have earned her over 130 appearances with Iceland’s National Team, along with seven Icelandic Footballer of the Year awards, and this summer, she will be looking to go all the way, as she takes part in the UEFA Women’s Euros with her team less than eight months after giving birth to her son.
Once the Euros come to a conclusion, our new No.77 will make her way to Italy to meet up with her new teammates in her new city, as pre-season for the 2022/23 season gets underway.
Welcome Sara, we cannot wait to see you on the pitch!
